Oh yeah ....one more thing......motors with laydown brushes are more prone to cause glitching. Need to cut the comm more often. Trim a bit off on the trailing edge of the +ve brushes. That'll help too.

thanks guys.

no one probably understood what i was talking about in my prev. msg... let me try again.

clamps=fits 14gauge wires and its the only type avaliable at my lhs
wires on esc=12gauge.

so how did i get around it?
i stripped the wires on my esc just enuf so i can put the clamps on it.

the core section of the clamp is now in direct contact with my esc wires.

esc wires heat quite a bit w/ modified motors. so wondering if the heat from the esc wires will damage the clamps.

I don't heat would kill the ferrite but the plastic clamps.....if the wires heat up hot enuf....the plastice may melt but not the ferrite..... why strip the insulation material.....mine fit in perfectly on the 12 gauge wire....suppose you need to squeeze that darn thing a little harder.

sigh.. i squeezed so hard i thought the plastic strap thingies weren't going to hold. so i gave up... didn't want to break anything... sigh... >_< guesss I should've tried harder.

Heat damages magnetics, (destroys their orientation) i am just hoping that the ferrite was not oriented (magnetized)...

It doesn't get that hot to melt plastic, otherwise the wire insulation would melt first (lower melting point) than the plastic surrounding the ferrite.

oooops! harder man ...harder ....!

Well ferrite is not magnetic sort of thingy......made of carbon sort of thing......used in torodial coils to power supplies, am radio antenna.....its function is to reduce or to remove signal distortion....I think..... and suppose heat won't affect its function. Well...thats what I understand....I'm not a radio engineer.

Thanks Keith, that's very clear! Been searching everywhere for a picture like that... all the other top racers seem to have gone for the all-black wiring look... couldn't tell which wires were which!

To my knowledge, the ferrite core acts as a "surge" protector. It should also (in theroy) affect punch since it will resist the change in current flow. I doubt that those little units would be strong enuf to have any real impact on your punch tho....
